Making an autotext entry permanent


G

Guest

I make sure the (normal) global template is selected when I create an
autotext entry and subsequently assign a keyboard shortcut. However, these
settings disappear on the next occasion that I start Word and want to make
use of them. The autotext entry disappears from the list. What might I be
doing wrong please? TIA ... Greg

Is Adobe Acrobat 7.0 installed on the computer? If yes, then the
Acrobat 7.0 Create Adobe PDF toolbar add-in for Word prevents
Word from automatically saving changes to the normal.dot template
(which is where autotext entries are stored). See
http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/331259.html for several
solutions to the problem.

From the FAQ:

28. I can't save my customizations - AutoText, menus, etc.
Can't save normal.dot...
If you have Adobe Acrobat 7 installed see the last section of
http://www.gmayor.com/lose_that_adobe_acrobat_toolbar.htm.
Otherwise, hold down the Shift key when selecting the File
menu and select Save All.
See also http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/331259.html.

Hope this helps,
